FUNDAP is a financial incentive to support companies headquartered in Espírito Santo and which carry out foreign trade operations subject to ICMS tax in Espírito Santo. Industrial companies that use imported inputs may qualify for FUNDAP financing, creating a branch specialized in foreign trade. The basic condition for FUNDAP financing is the taxable event and the need for payment. The company can be a Ltda. or S / A.
Foreign trade companies can apply for registration, which will have an operational limit to operate in the system. For the definition of the limit, whose validity is 12 months with annual renewals requested 60 days in advance, the following alternatives are considered: Paid-in Capital , PL, Revenue Forecast and Assets Assets. The definition of the limit is carried out according to the current rules.
